When the router is plugged in like it usually is, it acts as like a block to the internet. this started occurring after the house got hit by lightning. when i unplug the ethernet from the router directly to my computer, i can connect to the internet. but if the ethernet is run through the router i cant connect to the internet but my computer says im at 100.0 mbps with no internet. all of the lights on the router shows that it is fine but cant get no sign of a connection to the web. i think the router might be damaged from the lightning. ANY 1 have a suggestion!

Try by unplug the router from the mains and plug it back on. If you havent changed the settings manualy and had internet before it should work. If this doesnt work go to START>RUN>type CMD >in the black box type ipconfig /all and copy paste the info here to have a look.
Hi if the computer was turned on at the time and you was on the internet then i would suspect that the ethernet or wireless card driver has been corrupted and not the Router, try reinstalling the driver
Well this could be a number of problems but the most popular cause of this problem is out-of-date firmware.
If you visit the manufacturers website and download the firmware it should solve the problem but can't be sure.
The instructions of how to get the firmware update onto the router should be on the website, if not, type your routers IP address into the internet browser e.g. internet explorer, log-in and it should be pretty straight forward from there.
Take an Ethernet cable, and connect one computer to one of the LAN ports on the router.
Type CMD and press ENTER
Type IPCONFIG and press ENTER
Look for a line of output like:
Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 264.468.326.124
Start Internet Explorer
Type http://264.468.326.124 and press ENTER
Login to the Router (ID/password required)
Run the Wireless Networking Setup Wizard,
and create an SSID and create a WEP-key.
depending on who your ISP is, you need an ethernet cable coming from the modem into the WAN/Internet port on back of router. Once that is in you can try to connect wirelessly using the settings your router is setup for :
SSID/network name encryption type encryption key/passkey/passphrase -- this part is dependent on above setting wireless channel
The configuration of your cables is correct, as long as your modem is connected to the 'internet' port on your router. You must unplug the power cord from the back of your modem and plug it back in so that the modem recognizes the router. After doing this you should be able to get to the internet.
The modem has a security feature that only recognizes one physical address. When you were plugged directly into your pc, it had the pc's physical address saved in its memory. When you reconnected to the router, the modem blocked the router's access to the internet because the physical address of the router did not match the physical address that was saved in memory.
Hiya, either the seetings on the router fiewall have changed, or the shock has damaged the circuit board somehow, the speed that the computer says its connected to is whats called LOCAL only, meaning you are connected at that speed to the router only, circuit boards do funny things when shocked, have you tried another router? Id put my money on the board being fried.
